A U.N. department cut ties with a group linked to the Gülenist Terror Group (FETÖ) on Friday after a request from Turkey.
The U.N. Department of Public Information (DPI) has ended relations with the Journalists and Writers Foundation (JWF), whose honorary president is FETÖ leader Fetullah Gülen.
The move came after a demand from Turkey's Permanent Mission to the U.N. and months after another U.N. agency canceled the consultative status of three groups linked to the organization.
The United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), one of the six principal U.N. organizations, came to a consensus last April after voting to terminate all affiliation with the Kimse Yok Mu Relief Foundation, the JWF and the Turkish Confederation of Businessmen and Industrialists.
The move has been hailed as a victory by the Turkish mission to the U.N.
All three organizations were shut down in Turkey for their support for FETÖ following the July 15 coup attempt last summer. On Nov. 1, 39 suspects were detained in operations in 17 Turkish provinces for links to the JWF.
